HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT)- Officials with Owensboro’s Riverpark Center have announced an interim transition to new management.

Officials say they are temporarily teaming up with OVG 360 to get new management and leadership installed to help with the growth of the programs.

OVG360 are the operators of the Owensboro Convention Center and Sportscenter.

This transition comes after former Riverpark Center executive director Rich Jorn left his position last week.

The county cut funding for the Riverpark Center in June. Some Daviess County residents were also upset with the drag shows being held at the venue.

Officials told us on Thursday that the former director, Rich Jorn, separated from Riverpark Center on August 10. Officials told us because it was a personnel matter, no further comments would be made on his departure. 

RiverPark Center officials told us Thursday, “We have a plan and are executing and taking action on that plan set out by our very capable Board of Directors. We obviously have to fill that vacancy at the ED level of the organizational structure. In the interim, I and our Board will be supporting our staff as ‘the show must go on’ and will. We have a good staff and they know their roles.”
